    Default STOLEN Live Steam Locomotive @ Seattle, WA

    This was sent to me by a relative of mine who knows my interest in all things RAILROAD related.

    I know this is a non-MV item but certainly worthy of keeping as many eyes open as possible......


    https://komonews.com/news/local/thie...n-west-seattle (SEE VIDEO )
    Thieves caught on video stealing mini steam train in West Seattle

    SEATTLE - Thieves stole a mini steam locomotive from a garage in West Seattle - and the entire crime was caught on surveillance video.

    At least two people broke into the building early Sunday morning. Video shows the burglars head straight for the corner of the garage, where a 1,300-pound locomotive was sitting on a platform.

    The two thieves wheeled the engine through a back door, dumped it into a pickup truck and drove away.


    “I have thought worst-case scenario,” the train’s owner, Don Giffen said. “I’m just at a loss right now. I don’t know what to do.”


    Giffen bought the steam locomotive 25 years ago for around $60,000. It’s become a family treasure ever since.

    Trains run in the Giffen family. Don’s father worked on trains, as has his son and grandson. His son Dale now runs the family business, Miniature World Family Fun Center in Birch Bay.

    They have a mini train park where families can take a ride.


    The steam train is their most precious locomotive by far. It was in for maintenance when it was stolen.


    “To think you might never see it again, it’s really just a gut-wrenching feeling,” Dale Giffen said.


    The family is now offering a $1,000 reward for any information that leads to the train’s return.
